The new iMac is definitely the biggest show from Apple, in terms of size and media-focused features. And if it's predecessor was an eye-candy, this newest incarnation is even more - replacing the plastic back panel with the aluminum plate enhanced by curved details and mounted ports. And Apple products being media-centric implements, the presence of an SD slot bellow the video drive is a welcome sight. Add to that the high-quality sound that emanates from the system. Also making this baby so "now" are the WiFi connection, the multi-touch Magic Mouse and the wireless keyboard enhanced with Bluetooth technology.

The wide displays are ideal for movie watching more so because of it's LED backlighting resulting in vivid colors and enviable contrast. It also allows quite a range of viewing angles. Unfortunately, the new iMac is not enabled with Blu-Ray technology but techies everywhere suggest it can easily be solved by a USB drive. But that very minor issue-aside, the new iMac is definitely a desktop beauty and the epitome of computing in high definition (HD).
